Madrid travel tips

1) Visit the Reina Sofía Museum in a former hospital in Madrid dedicated to contemporary art

Museo Reina Sofía attracts contemporary art lovers. This museum is located in a former 16th-century hospital building. Tourists come here to see Guernica by Picasso, a symbol of the suffering and horror of the Spanish Revolution and Civil War. A separate room is dedicated to the surrealistic works of Salvador Dali.

2) Stop by the Madrid Atocha train station to appreciate its beauty and floating garden

The old building of the Atocha station resembles a palace. Inside you will find a real tropical garden with turtles and toads. The building was built in 1852 but has been rebuilt several times. Trains leave already from the new terminal, which is located nearby.

3) Be sure to check out the statue of the Bear and the Strawberry Tree – the symbol of Madrid

The statue of the Bear and the Strawberry Tree is one of the notable sculptures in Madrid. It was installed in the Puerta del Sol square in 1966. The statue is a copy of the image on the Madrid coat of arms. One version says it symbolises the different influences of church and state (the tree stands for the church). Another version says the beast eating berries from the tree signifies the unity of nature – flora and fauna.
